Sonicity: Songs Of Atoms Time And Space





What I love about this artwork is how it uses the data and the space and convert it into sound.

It creates a soundscape that makes us listen to the gallery’s data.

However what makes me even more intrigued is the way the speakers are arranged. The speakers  are places in different planes and on different height. A good use of repetition not only helps to enhance the visual interest of the space, but is also important in defining the parameters of how much space is being occupied.

The wide range of speakers also allow a wider range of data to be heard. The artist also uses software to convert the streams of data into sound.


There are a total of 170 speakers,Stanza_soncity-


I think how we think about the space is important .


What kind of sound do I want to gather? What kind of  feelings will it invoke? If the audience is responsible for creating the sound, then how much freedom are we giving them?


Distorting Space and Time


Step inside “Momentum,” the massive installation from United Visual Artists (UVA) at London’s Barbican Centre. The experience is a void of darkness filled with only 12 illuminated pendulums swinging rhythmically from the sky, creating an evolving composition of light and sound. The unexpected contrast of natural and synthetic patterns is designed to distort your perception of time and physical space


I think perhaps the most fascinating thing about this project was how simple the construction was.


It was 12 lights that swing from the sky.

And yet that idea was able to capture something beautifulUVA_BARBICAN_PRESS_140212_9807 UVA_BARBICAN_PRESS_140212_9797


I think the movement of the light really shows when the images are taken with light exposure.

It’s really quite amazing how a space can be changed with some simple moving lights.



I think one take away for my own project would be to explore the relationship of time and space using lights.

How do we perceive light and how does that distort reality?
